Jesse Livermore

Exchange trader of the early 20th century
Without faith in his own judgment no man can go very far in this game. That is about all I have learned - to study general conditions, to take a position and stick to it. I can wait without a twinge of impatience. I can see a setback without being shaken, knowing that it is only temporary.More Jesse Livermore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Just remember, without discipline, a clear strategy, and a concise plan, the speculator will fall into all the emotional pitfalls of the market - jump from one stock to another, hold a losing position too long, and cut out of a winner too soon, for no reason other than fear of losing profit. Greed, Fear, Impatience, Ignorance, and Hope will all fight for mental dominance over the speculator. Then, after a few failures and catastrophes the speculator may become demoralised, depressed, despondent, and abandon the market More Jesse Livermore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Don't give me timing, give me timeMore Jesse Livermore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The market always does what it should do, but not always whenMore Jesse Livermore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of the most helpful things that anybody can learn is to give up trying to catch the last eighth - or the first. These two are the most expensive eighths in the world. They have cost stock traders, in the aggregate, enough millions of dollars to build a concrete highway across the continent.More Jesse Livermore quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
